Gordon's Bay is reputed for its beautiful clean and safe swimming beaches. Bikini Beach is aptly named for the sun-worshippers who seek out its sheltered position. It is one of only four beaches in the Western Cape, which has been awarded Blue Flag status, symbolizing a first class beach.
Just 50 paces away from the guesthouse is a quiet little beach which is ideal for families with small children. The water is shallow and there is plenty of shade from the milkwood trees which line its edge. This beach is perfect for swimmers and snorkellers and the sea is several degrees warmer than that of other resorts on the Atlantic coast.
Of course, there is also the main beach of Gordon's Bay which is ideal for a sunset stroll to the many restaurants and ice cream parlours of the village.
The town boasts two harbours which offer plenty of scope for yachtsmen and anglers alike.
